Via Buzzfeed, here are 25 pictures of Mitt Romney looking “perfectly normal.” And he does.
But what struck me is how happy he looks in most of the pictures. He doesn’t look stiff and wooden and like the Mitt we all know and loathe. And I guess I just don’t get it. Look how happy he is in those pictures on the beach, playing with his grandkids. If I were in Mitt’s shoes, with a half a billion or however how much money he has, there is simply nothing you could do to make me go through the fresh hell of running for and then serving as President. He’s spent what- ten years traveling the country eating in shitty little dives, putting up with the bullshit of every potential voter. I get pissed when the animals wake me up at night, the last damned thing I want to do is get a 3 am phone call and then have to make life or death decisions. Or get up every day and spend the whole day reading briefing books and making horrible decisions (in my estimation, by the time something gets to the President’s desk, the options are to choose between bad or worse).
Why would anyone in his situation do that to themselves?
